Route History

Service 970 is an inter-town route linking public and private housing estates of Bukit Panjang, Hillview, Bukit Batok, Bukit Timah, Sixth Avenue, Holland Village, Commonwealth and Alexandra, with the City areas of River Valley, Great World, Outram Park, Chinatown, Telok Ayer and Shenton Way.

Despite its many unique connections, the route serves many low-density estates and demand is moderate as a result. Much of its demand comes from shuttling commuters between various points of its lengthy route. The fleet comprises of rigid buses, and high capacity double-deck / articulated buses are not deployed due to a lack of demand.

No alighting is allowed at Shenton Way Ter.

Service 970 was amended to Bukit Panjang ITH as part of its opening on 04 Sep 2017.
